Toolroom Records is known internationally as one of the most innovative major brands in dance music.
After 15 years in the music industry, we are known for our passion for quality House music, and our close connection with the #ToolroomFamily – our international community of fans. Over the years we’ve signed and even discovered some legendary artists; we’ve led the way in an ever-changing industry, developing artists and even evolving ourselves – and this is just the beginning.
Toolroom Records began in 2003 when emerging DJ/producer Mark Knight and brother Stuart Knight started the label. Quickly developing a fan base of professional and aspiring DJs, the label became synonymous with credible House and Tech House.
‘Our mantra from the beginning was a simple one’ say Mark. ‘We wanted to be a record label run by DJs, for DJs. The kind of label that when you saw the artwork behind the counter of the record shop, you’d buy on sight.’
Rising in tandem with the career of label figurehead Mark, Toolroom rapidly grew into an internationally known brand through some defining club records – most notably Mark Knight’s remixes of ‘Man With The Red Face’ and ‘You’ve Got The Love’, among a host of original material from Mark and other heavyweight dance artists.
Toolroom has also diversified beyond a traditional record label model. We have successfully expanded into events, with Toolroom residencies and festival appearances all over the world. Moving towards other media platforms, Toolroom Radio, hosted by Mark Knight, is an overwhelming success with over 16 million listens per week, and Toolroom Academy – the educational arm of the brand – offering a range of innovative production and DJ courses to the next generation of electronic music artists.
‘It’s very a much a family thing’ says Mark. ‘When we talk about the Toolroom Family’, that’s not just a marketing slogan. We’re normal, level-headed people, but we’ve always dreamed big.’
With a strong musical vision and a tight artist roster, this is still the start of a journey for Toolroom – and we want to share it with you.
